CASE-ing the Catty - Sale-a-bration Last Hurrah!


Hi there

We are in the final week of the Sale-a-bration promotion, so this will be the last time the Crew will be CASE-ing from the Sale-a-bration catalogues. There is still time to earn the Sale-a-bration products on your Wish List with an order of $90 or more (before shipping) enabling you to choose one of the many fabulous Level 1 products. A $180 or more order (before shipping) enables you to choose two Level 1 products or one of the Level 2 products. Don't forget the extra Sale-a-bration products that were released in February and March - you can see all of the products available here.

You may have come from visiting Peta's blog, but if you are visiting me, you can start your journey here and continue by clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the post. 

This week, I'm taking my inspiration from the samples in the photo above using the beautiful 'Springtime Foils' Designer Series paper. This is much more like card stock than paper, with mixed metal foil designs and a glossy finish; perfect for 3D projects such as boxes and bags. There are 4 single-sided designs, with 3 sheets of each. You can use the paper as it is or colour it with sponges, daubers, brayer or ink pads to name a few.

My first card is inspired by the design on the bottom left of the sample photo. This layout really focuses on the designer paper, so I didn't want the embellishment to compete with it. I started by colouring all the leaves with an Emerald Envy Stampin' Write marker. As it is a pretty intense colour, I have wiped off some of the ink with a synthetic chamois before it dried. I then used my Pool Party ink pad and swiped it across the panel to create the soft background that blends with the leaves. I added the panel to an Emerald Envy card base and then created the embellishment.

I've chosen to highlight the gold in the design by looping some Mini Sequin Trim under the Emerald Envy scallop circle. The wooden heart was adhered to the circle and the greeting stamped in Emerald Envy was adhered to the heart. I finished with 2 small flat gold cabochons. My camera couldn't capture the vibrancy of the Emerald Envy, so you will have to take my word that it is very pretty and the gold leaves really pop!


I have kept the inside super simple, with a white writing panel and a strip of the designer paper at the bottom. I highlighted the gold again with a narrow strip of foil above the designer paper.

My second card is inspired by the one on the far right in the sample photo. I have used a landscape orientation for my card; staying with the gorgeous rose gold dotted paper and pairing it with Pink Pirouette and Copper Foil accents to create a soft and pretty card. I think this would make a lovely Mother's Day card.

I have heat embossed the greeting from the 'A Mother's Flair' stamp set in copper, cropped it with a circle framelit and adhered it to a Pink Pirouette stitched circle. I popped half a doily under the designer paper so that it frames the circle. On the left side is the pretty floral die cut from the 'Petals & More' Thinlits Dies in Copper Foil. I added a piece of the Adhesive Sheets to the reverse of the copper foil before die cutting, creating an easy to adhere sticker.


For the inside, I went all out with a Copper Foil mat for the white writing panel. I added a strip of the designer paper at the base, topped with a narrow strip of Pink Pirouette. In the corner I have the other smaller floral die cut from the Petals & More Thinlits Dies with a small pearl in the centre of the flower.

Oh wowzers! Both of your cards are to die for Judy. I agree that second one will be perfect for Mother's Day.

Rebecca S

Both cards are beautiful!! I love the idea of colouring the dsp.

Peta Stephen

Two gorgeous cards Judy, I love them both.

Angela Meiritz-Reid

Wow both your cards look amazing Judy, love them both x

Monique Fielder

Such pretty cards Judy! Thanks for sharing how you achieved that beautiful soft background colouring on your first card. That DSP is so versatile.

Elizabeth Gross

oh Judy these are both GORGEOUS. Love the colouring on the leaves card, I'll have to try softer colours as a background too. And your copper touches on the pink version are beautiful. It's nice to have a layout that lets the DSP take centre stage

Julia Quinn

Yes, you've inspired me! I would love to try some of your ideas. They are both so beautiful but I really love what you have done with the emerald envy card. Colouring the leaves as well as sponging the background is a brilliant idea.
